    Hi Madletter, I can't think why your image is not uploading. I'll bring it up with the other community helpers and Arcana, I'm sure one of them will be able to find a fix.

    Cheers

    I got it from work, but the interwebs state it's free for personal use. If used commercially, it might be different, though...

    Thanks ravells.

    Might someone eventually give me his e-mail so he could upload it here for me? >_<

    Also I found the website of the designer of the AquillineTwo font:

    Seems if you want to use it commercially, you have to donate to some organization...

    I still can't post the pictures, which by now angering me a little -_-

    Anyone knows a good location where I can freely upload large pictures? (Jpeg right now is about 3.5 MB)



    EDIT: I splitted the map up in different parts. Hope this works. Reference to my first post, the big map, as to what is where.

    Also of six map-parts, I can only get two up. Anything else yields me a database error *Grumble*

    Very nice technique. Simple but illustrative enough. I am a little concerned with the desert and broken lands colors. They stand out too much. Maybe less opacity or something...

    Other than that great font, nice names...Bravo!

    Thanks for the praise and constructive thoughts!

    The Desert and Broken Lands are both still not really done. I just painted them on the map so I have the location set. Everything (terrain-wise) above the Dawnforge Mountains is 99% done. Below nearly nothing as of yet

    First, I love the color pallete. Very nice colors together. One thing I don't like is the contrasting styles with the hand drawn mountains and the texture fill for the forests (and to a lesser extend the dark lands). To me, it just does not mesh well in my mind.

    I stop by a website called DaFont.com, that's where I get most of my free fonts from (some 12,000 now although I can not use all of them at the same time because most programs will only load so many). So I rename them with a prefix and sort them according to style...GO- for gothic, GR- for grunge, HW- for handwritten, etc. and when I'm working in a certain style I just copy the needed fonts into the correct fonts subfolder in the windows folder then delete and add new ones when I change projects or styles.
